Newport, RI Vineyard & Winery Excursion
You, our members, have asked for a Boston Uncorked winery/vineyard tour event and we are here to deliver. Join us on Saturday, October 1st for our first Estate-level event, as we journey together to the Newport, RI area to visit and tour two of New England’s top vineyards and wine producers: Greenvale Vineyards and Newport Vineyards.
Enjoy this early Autumn outing as we stroll the vineyard rows and partake in the rare experience of sampling grapes right off the vines. We will then have the opportunity to go inside the tasting room to try the wines made from grapes from these same vines (prior vintage, of course). We’ll also get to tour the winery and learn the step-by-step winemaking process.
Your ticket for this event is all inclusive and includes:
- Transportation to and from Boston (see Transportation Details below)
- Tours of both wineries
- Wine tastings at both vineyards
- Engraved tasting glasses from each tasting room
- Picnic lunch on the grounds of one of the wineries
Travel to and from Newport, as well as inter-vineyard transportation, will be by chartered luxury coach bus. Leave the driving to someone else and enjoy the fruits of the vines!
